Bearded Revolutionaries

Here is a quote from Hélder Pessoa Câmara (1909-1999), a Brazilian Roman Catholic Archbishop who said:  

"When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why they are poor, they call me a communist"

There are two men who have greatly influenced me, both politically and religiously

Some might say that these two men are incompatible

But I'd disagree

Here is a man who needs no introduction:

An here is Karl Marx (1818-1883)

Both these bearded revolutionaries have influenced my world view to a very great extent

And I believe both would agree that what we know as "capitalism" is morally flawed

Although only Karl posits an alternative way of doing things

But if we all lived like how Jesus showed us to then a better society would most certainly emerge - as everyone would be nice to everyone else!
